Cohousing

Lost Lake Cohousing will be a self managed strata, an intentional community of privately owned homes in addition to extensive common areas. Cohousing projects are designed by residents, and reflect their priorities including wanting to live in a close-knit neighborhood with a healthy blend of privacy and community connection.

Residents manage their own cohousing communities, and perform much of the work required to maintain the property as well as the social fabric. They participate in the preparation of common meals, meet regularly to solve problems, develop policies for the community, and have fun!

Locally, there are cohousing communities in Courtenay, Nanaimo, Sidney and Sooke as well as many more on the mainland.  Information on completed and forming cohousing communities is at the  Canadian Cohousing Network.

One hundred and fifty cohousing communities have been built across the United States and more in Europe, including Denmark, where cohousing originated, as a modern form of village and mutually supportive community.
